The 5th Annual Hamtramck Music Fest is a live music event in Detroit’s beloved enclave of Hamtramck, March 1–4, 2018. Celebrating Metro Detroit’s diverse music community, audiences hop venue to venue via foot, car, or shuttle to experience live performances by over 160 bands in 21 of Hamtramck’s favorite bars, venues and restaurants. 

One $10 wristband provides three days and nights of live music for the community, with many shows 18 and up, as well as daytime performances for family audiences.


Powered by the People, the Hamtramck Music Fest's organizers and musicians are volunteering their time and talents for the betterment of our extended community. Hundreds of bands and dozens of venues are featured during 'the largest local music festival of its kind,' taking place the first weekend of March annually. 

All donated festival proceeds in 2018 will go to the Hamtramck Public Schools Music and Art programs. The festival includes family friendly events during the day, as well as nighttime performances at local Hamtramck establishments. 

Through pro-active citizenry, music, and culture, the HMF is determined to celebrate and enrich our community in Hamtramck and the surrounding Metropolitan Detroit area. We strive to provide a safe, diverse, and enjoyable festival for all.
